    Subjectmount from debian to 44bsd, chown bug report?
    Hello everyone.  I am booting up into a bootable Knoppix 3.2 (Debian Linux)
    CD-R ( and trying to mount my FreeBSD 4.7-RELEASE partition.

    The working command-line is:
    `mount -t ufs -o ufstype=44bsd /dev/hda2 /mnt/fbsd`

    At one time I was naturally able to read/write files to the partition once
    it was mounted, but then I chowned the root directory to "knoppix." Now
    here is what's happening:

    # whoami ; mount | grep 44bsd
    /dev/hda2 on /mnt/test type ufs (rw,ufstype=44bsd)

    # ls -al /mnt | grep knoppix
    drwxr-x--x 25 knoppix root 1024 Dec 18 22:10 /mnt/test

    # grep ufs /proc/filesystems

    # chown root /mnt/test
    chown: changing ownership of `test': Read-only file system

    The error above contradicts the "mount" info, namely, the "rw" part!!

    Is this a BUG? Might a fix be to give the user "knoppix" the ability
    to mount? Please help me, someone...?
